“Fresh food fast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

Grabbed a basil mozzarella and tomato panini and it was scrumptious - the fresh quality of the milky white mozzarella with the generous whole leaves of basil was delicious. The sandwich was big enough to split. Would certainly return for breakfast or lunch.

“Jave Lava has great catering services”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

We were recently in the area for a wedding. We had a catered lunch at the Java Lava. The food was excellent. We had a buffet with chicken, brisket, salad, green beans, and roasted potatoes. Everything was excellent! The staff was personable and had great attention to detail. I would like to go back and check out the coffees later.

“The best of the best in Coffee Shops & Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

The best of the best when it comes to quality food at a reasonable price in Downtown Orlando. Java Lava is excellent! We had the skillet breakfast and couldn't have been happier about our choice. We also had a few lattes and these guys know how to do them right! Cozy atmosphere and good food at a very reasonable price. How could you ask for anything else? Definitely recommend it to all my friends.

“A Great Surprise in Downtown”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2007

Ok, it's Friday Night, we are in a hurry to get to a comedy show at the Bob Carr Performing Arts Center and running LATE of course. Driving down Robinson, we pass Java Lava and I notice it has a Tapas menu out front! Stop I say, we found parking right around the corner easily enough and walk back to Java Lava. Now by day this is a simple deli with espresso drinks and normal quick deli fare, by night they set up shoji screens and drape tables with cloth for a bistro setting. Granted the decor could use help, it isn't initimate or cozy. However, if you want relatively inexpensive food in a cute place, this is the place. We had the Salmon Carpaccio, the Pork Tostado, and Steak skewers. They serve a little plate of roasted potato wedges tossed in a spicy balsamic reduction which were delicious. The food was fresh, fantastic, and fast! 3 plates of tapas, 2 glasses of wine and our bill was $33.00. Not bad!
They just started doing dinner fare so stop by when you are downtown and check them out! The atmosphere could use a decorators touch but the food was great!
